Quidco - Credit Expert Offer - has it changed, cos i'm confused

Found 27th Sep 2010
Ok, so i am convinced i got an email from quidco the other day with an offer for Credit Expert.
£20 for the 30 day trial, and £1.50 for each subsequent month (upto and including month 12), Therefore 12 x £1.50 = £18 plus the £20 as part for the 30 days.

I have just gone to have a look and, might just be me but the offer looks all messed up, like it has been badly edited.

Seems now you get an initial £5 (not £20) and the same £1.50 per each month but the £20 offer is still there on the left hand side, contradicting the table on the right.

If i sign up before the 30th, will i get £5 if i cancel within 30 days or £20?

Yes looks likes its changed.
£5 for free 30 day trial and £1-50 a month.

So if you subscribe for 12 months then its £23

Incorrect post # 1.
Go to the creditexpert page of Quidco and under all the cashback info, there's a blue link which, when opened gives details of the £20 offer available until September 30th.

Don't mention it

I saw that part of the offer, hence me saying it looks like the web page has been badly edited.
See, the top of the page, says Cashback upto £23 (3 rates) yet, as you rightly point out, the offer is lurking away in the bottom left of the page, with a link needed to be clicked to reveal more.
I have no issue with that, it's just not very well laid out is it?
You'd think it would say, Cashback upto £38 (4 rates)
No?

For some reason, the bottom section of the page is 'Cashback with offers' as opposed to just cashback!
Possibly explaining them not including it in the total (£23)

Really crap page set-up though!!!

thank you for agreeing with me that the page layout wasn't the best it could be
Seems fairly clear then, the offer is still valid
Thank you for the replies folks, have clicked like, not sure what it does but least i can do

It's tracked but at a fiver.
Offer til the 30th? Yeah right.
I get more and more frustrated by this company

Yeah mine too. I'll be raising an enquiry into this, defo said £20 when i did it.
Quidco are getting worse i agree, i use TCB these days but they didnt have this offer.

Not sure how you will raise a query, just tried and it says it's not supported!

Ive emailed Quidco as i got the same message.
What an absolute blag not being able to raise a query, after they ended the promo early!!!
I tell you, Quidco gone right down the pan, Topcashback is the way forward, free too.

Got a reply today stating they ended the offer early, at 10.30am on the 27th sept.
Even though i clicked a link at tea time on the 27th stating it was still £20 cashback, i have to prove with a screenshot that this was the case, basically they accused me of lying.
Obviously i dont have that screenshot, just their word against mine.

QUIDCO = COWBOY OUTFIT.

£5 tracked and thats all they'll give me.
As soon as this pays, its bye bye Quidco forever.

What an appalling company. Use Topcashback instead.
